Malta's third annual Chocolate Festival


This exciting and mouth watering event will see the streets of Hamrun being transformed into a chocoholic's dream featuring chocolate sculpture exhibitions, chocolate cocktails and a array of delectable chocolatey products to set the taste buds alight.


Malta is delighted to announce the third annual Chocolate Festival will be taking place on October 30th 2011. Hamrun’s streets will be transformed into a chocoholic’s dream featuring exhibitions of chocolate sculptures, cocktails and an array of delectable chocolatey products to set any chocoholics heart alight.


This year’s event is set to be bigger and better than ever as chocolate is transformed into an art form. Assortments of beautifully crafted sculptures will line the streets and chocolate body painters on hand to ensure everyone gets into the spirit. Live demonstrations from top chefs, bakers and chocolate makers let visitors experiment with recipes and discover an array of innovative chocolate creations.


The entertainment is endless at this shrine to all things chocolate. Painters, sculptors, make-up artists and body painters all have creative ways of illustrating how chocolate can be used beyond the wildest of imaginations. A play area is also available for children to experience chocolate in a different way.


Chocolate has been enjoyed in Malta for over 350 years, since the Knights of St John first brought it to the nation. Chocolate based drinks and recipes then became popular and still are today. Hamrun is filled with an abundance of confectioners making it the ideal location for the Chocolate Festival.


This event is one of the most popular in Malta and one definitely not to be missed. It is a true celebration of all things chocolate!
